I have missed you as now you are grown,
No longer a little boy, a picture in my mind.
Where did you go, I once held your hand,
Walked you to school, played in the park.
You seem so far away from yesterday,
Not in distance as we spent part of a day.
So good to laugh and hear a son’s voice,
In you rests a piece of another time and place.
I miss you from once a child, it’s been awhile,
For granted we take time, time has passed by.
“My son” I keep you always in my heart and thoughts,
I must worry just a bit, be safe each day, love from dad.
